12/14/19: Revelation 5:1-14; Psalm 133:1-3; Proverbs 29:26-27

From today’s reading and with just a little imagination I think we can get at least a “micro-glimpse” of the glory that exists in the presence of the Lord:

Revelation 5:  11 Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. 12 In a loud voice they were saying:

“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
    to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
    and honor and glory and praise!”

13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”

While the numbers are not to be taken literally and really express an infinite number envision at least 100 million angels in one location, walking in circles around a throne all speaking in unison.  Now add to that every creature (KJV – created thing) also offering praise.  Is there any reason that the “elders fell down and worshiped?”

What else could be done in the presence of the Lord, God Almighty; the Alpha and the Omega; the Beginning and the End?
